Emotions Cast Out – A Tanka

This is a beautiful tanka which speaks to the need to be mindful of our emotions and know that they can to shall pass.

Black and Write

Emotions cast out

Like a net upon the sea


Take on a life of their own

Spiraling out of control

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and spent the last 14 years teaching in an incrediable hybrid school setting. My dissertation topic and research were how teachers experience becoming who teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.

  3. The emotional net might catch something too big to handle.

    I’ve never heard of a “tanka”. Interesting!

    I liked it very much.
